So much to do and so much to see, this is one of the most interesting sites you will visit, the Mary Rose and its museum is fascinating, the being able to step on board Nelsons ship HMS Victory is just amazing, then onto the modern era of iron and the fantastic HMS Warrior, you will find it hard to...

Well worth a visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to view HMS Victory, The Mary Rose and even the Warrior. The museum is very interesting too. Great value for money.

Great historic Dockyard with huge amount of history, so many boats to see and walk around, more than enough to do several short visits with the yearly pass. Mary Rose exhibition - fantastic! HMS victory a must.

As a “Navy Brat” and the wife of a Sailor this was both an educational and emotional visit. My father was Chief ERA on the USS Stubborn, one of the towing subs of the midget submarines that were sent to disable (or hopefully sink) the Tirpitz. So the Royal Navy Submarine Museum was particularly poignant for me. To see HMS... More

We spent two half days and a whole day here and still didn't see everything. HMS Victory was our favourite. Make sure you pick up the free audio guide just by the entrance once you have gone aboard. We were lucky to have a guide at the Submarine museum, who had actually served on that submarine, which meant that we... More

Sooooo much to see and do! We spent half the day, and saw only the HMS Victory and the Mary Rose. If you go, buy the 'everything' ticket...because if you see more than one thing, the price is the same or less--and trust me, you will want to see more than one thing.

Used Tesco Clubcard vouchers for our visit. Ticket is valid for 1 year as you will need a return visit. Loads to do and see. Only managed the ships and 1 museum so will definitely re visit

Fantastic place with loads to see and experience. My recommendation would be to buy the annual season ticket online in advance of arriving. Gives you 20% off and you only need to go into 2 exhibits and you've made your money. HMS Victory was the best in my opinion
